Comparison

“To be a happy person, one has to drop all comparison. Drop all these stupid ideas of being superior and inferior. You are neither superior nor inferior. You are simply yourself! There exists no one like you, no one with whom you can be compared. Then, suddenly, you are at home.”

Osho

Perceptions

Today I escaped anxiety. Or no, I discarded it, because it was within me, in my own perceptions not outside. 

– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Death

Don’t behave as if you are destined to live forever. What’s fated hangs over you. As long you live and while you can, become good now.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Inspiring Words

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

– Martin Luther King Jr.
